“you’re not here”

sound installation


“you’re not here” (4 channel version) @ shut up and listen – festival, vienna 2007

a sequence of silence in different levels
recordings of empty performance- and rehearsal-rooms, mixing with the actual sound of the installation-site

- an imaginary architecture as acoustical intervention
- a tightrope walk between abstraction and perceptibility – thinking about the preconditions of listening music

an imaginary building – an open building with transparent walls. it’s about something small surrounded by nothing
